    Default SS Kepi, real or not?

    Hello, i am new here.

    I - not-so-long ago entered the hobby of collecting Third-Reich items(both replicas and genuine ones). I recently acquired this nice piece of kepi but i have no idea how to distinguish this one as genuine or just a high-quality replica.

    Any experts willing to share their opinion?

    p.s. i would very much appreciate any further useful tips for an inexperienced collector like me.

    Not an expert on these or anything else but that looks all bad.

    I think instead of collecting both replica and original items save your money for original items only...

    neither am I Jerry, but I fully agree. Even the insignia. But Welcome to the forum Ikh. Feel free to post future potential purchases on the forum before buying

    Bad to the bone in my opinion.Fake tags.Poor stitchting.I would try to return it in case a high sum of money was paid.

    This in some manner is total fantasy as genuine SS kepis for other ranks never had a black and white piping. Officers wore silver. As others have said, it is totally 4th Reich junk.

    Also the insignia are fakes and known for this type of cap.
